Remarks & Notes 
A view on the Turntable at Shelley on the Kirklees Light Railway in Yorkshire. Hawk is the largest and most powerful engine on this 15" gauge line, which was built on the trackbed of a closed standard gauge line. The 0-4-0+0-4-0T locomotive was completed by Brian Taylor at Clayton West in 1998. This is the main base of the line. It is based on a Kitson Meyer type engine that was built by Andrew Barclay in Scotland and exported to Chile in 1903. The Kitson-Meyer design consisted of two sets of coupled wheels under one frame, with both power units free to swivel in relation to the frame. Unlike the usual practice on articulated steam locomotives where the engine units would be mounted in opposing orientations, those of the Kitson-Meyer were both mounted back-to-front with the coupled wheels forward of the cylinders. The rear engine unit discharged its exhaust steam up a chimney which was mounted in the coal bunker to the rear of the cab, while the front engine unit discharged in the usual manner up the chimney mounted on the smokebox in front of the boiler.
